Today we are going to go through a list of forums to find the best metal detector forum on the web. But first, let’s talk a little about what metal detecting forums are and how they can be beneficial for your metal detecting.
So, how can metal detector forums be beneficial? Well, it is simple really. How many friends do you have that have the same passion for metal detecting as you? I am sure it is less than the fingers on your right hand (unless you’re lucky and have a metal detecting group already, then congrats). However, most of us don’t have these contacts as metal detecting isn’t such a famous hobby. I actually learnt how to make a homemade metal detector from one of the forums!
This is where a metal detecting forum comes in handy. These are forums where people interested in metal detecting come together and share their experience, ask questions and connect with new people – may be making some real life friends sharing the same passion as them? How awesome is that?
To bring you up to par as to which are the best metal detecting forums, I had to go through the internet, read through some articles and recommendations and also find if at all these forums are worth joining. I discovered several friendly metal detecting forums. I will talk about these forums one by one so that you can make a wise choice on which one to join. But before then, let’s have a chit chat about metal detecting forums.
Characteristics of metal detecting forums
Well, it’s always perfect when you can find friendly forums and get to meet people who are interested in the same passion as you. However, there’s always need to be careful and vigilant not to be duped into something you did not ask for. Some of these metal detector forums—so called—are not really worth your time and are just manufacturers trying to get people to like their products. Do not join something that’s going to rob you of honesty and accountability. Get real comments from real people who are truly enjoying their metal detecting hobby.
Metal detecting forums are classified differently mostly based on different manufacturers, types of metal detecting and of course you’ll also encounter general purpose forums. Depending on what you are looking for, these classifications should give you what you are looking for. However, there’s always a case of one or two bad apples in a particular bunch—bad people who are only looking to criticize others. It’s good to avoid trash talkers and focus on what’s really important. In any case you can always opt for several forums just to be on the safe side. And oh, before I forget, you can also join a metal detecting equipment forum in case you need some advise on your detector’s accessory.
